IS Cuts off Mobile Network in Mosul

By John Lee.

Islamic State militants have reportedly blocked all mobile phone networks in Mosul.

According to BasNews, an official at one of the mobile phone operators said his company was investigating the issue, but declined to give further details.

According to reports, shutting down of phone lines is a notable change from what has been the group’s core strategy so far – focusing on providing services and establishing administration in areas it controls to win support of the locals.
